Horizontal strapping is a relatively simple, efficient way to secure a variety of products. Horizontally placed straps can be used to hold boxes or other stackable products to prevent the product on the pallets from becoming unstable during transport or storage. Often also combined with vertical strapping or wrapping film to bind the product even more firmly to the pallet, horizontal strapping is a safe solution for local or long-distance transport.
Strapping in various sectors
Typical sectors where horizontal strapping is used include the packaging industry, food industry, logistics, floriculture and many others. Some examples of markets and products include boxed large household items, such as furniture and kitchen cabinets. Stackable or layered products including boxed dairy products, and packaged fresh produce such as avocados, apples and tomatoes. Horizontal bands are often still applied manually.
Fully automatic strapping
Reisopack has various fully automatic horizontal strapping machines in its range. The Reisopack 2905, for example, is a highly productive machine that is able to apply three bands including 4 pallet corners in approximately 65 seconds. The strapping machine can be installed at heights suitable for any application with a maximum loading height of 2.6 meters and a minimum of 145 mm, including the pallet.
